Personality Disorder Treatment at 10 Acre Ranch
For many men, personality disorders and addiction often go hand in hand. A personality disorder is a type of mental disorder that causes a person to have rigid and unhealthy patterns of thinking, functioning, and behaving. Often, men with personality disorders can have difficulty perceiving and relating to situations and people – and this causes significant stress on relationships, social activities, work, and school. In addition, men with personality disorders often suffer from depression and anxiety, which can lead to self-medicating and the eventual abuse of alcohol and drugs. In fact, substance use disorder is diagnosed in roughly half of individuals with personality disorder.
While the exact cause of personality disorders is unknown, both family history and life events and relationships play a role. For example, people with a history of abuse, trauma, neglect, or being bullied have an increased risk of having a personality disorder.
Types of Personality Disorders in Men
While these mental disorders affect both male and females, some personality disorders are more common in men. For instance, nearly 90 percent of antisocial personality disorder diagnoses are among men.
Personality disorders are often grouped into three clusters – Cluster A, Cluster B, and Cluster C – according to similar symptoms and characteristics. Since some of the symptoms overlap, it’s pretty common for people with one type of personality disorder to have signs of at least one other personality disorder.
Types of personality disorders include:
- Paranoid personality disorder
- Schizoid personality disorder
- Schizotypal personality disorder
- Antisocial personality disorder
- Borderline personality disorder
- Narcissistic personality disorder
- Avoidant personality disorder
- Dependent personality disorder
- Obsessive-compulsive personality disorder
